I added this book to my list of things to read after I heard about it on the Writer's Almanac. It's a modern twist on the classic Little Women. I really like reading books that are set in places I've visited -- this novel is set in New Haven and one of the main characters attends Yale. I've recently visited New Haven and walked around Yale so I was excited to read about a place I've been to. So I enjoyed that connection. I generally enjoyed the plot of the book, but didn't care for the constant narrative interruptions. The author is told from the point of view of the middle sister, Jo, with reader and author notes added to the plot. Kind of Infinite Jest without being clever or particularly important to the plot.
